    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - FX has opted not to renew veteran producer Steven Bochco's Iraq War drama series "Over There," citing lackluster ratings, the cable network said Tuesday.

    "I'm deeply proud of 'Over There,' which was beautifully produced, acted, written and directed," FX president and general manager John Landgraf Landgraf said. "The series was arguably the most critically acclaimed new television show of the year, a fact which made the decision not to renew it all the more difficult."

    Despite a strong debut that drew 4.1 million viewers, "Over There" tailed off through the rest of its 13-episode run, averaging just 2.1 million overall.

    i thought it was a pretty good show. the tactics they use are really messed up and we wouldnt do a lot of the stuff they do in the show, but i still enjoyed watching it

    I liked it in the beginning then it seemed like every episode lately was about husbands cheating on their wives in Iraq, wives cheating on their husbands and I was sick of all of the infidelity.
